    I know, right? this excellent Wired article explains it perfectly:
       I suspect that the tech billionaires didn’t want to be heroes merely
       by saving individual lives. That’s just what firemen do; that’s just
       what Spider-Man does. The billionaires wanted to be heroes who saved
       the whole human race. That’s what Iron Man does.

    lol..heroes if only- thats not enough, they actually want to play "divine creators" (bombardng other planets with '0000's tons of earth resources) & even go as far to create "sustainable human environments" by terraforming these other planets atmospheres.. WOW #sigh natural order is under attack.

    To be fair, disregarding his personality and talking strictly on the idea, I don't believe in the long-long run we will remain a single-planet species. Therefore, at least directing funds to reasearchers to work on these problems could prove valuable in the future, imho.
